Best Buy Advertises iPhone 4 Accessories Before iPhone 4 Launch

Share:

It is six days before the iPhone 4 launch in Canada and Best Buy has started to advertise their selection of iPhone 4 accessories in store! A little early but hey, good effort!

While the company does not have any specific iPhone 4 cases or accessories listed on their website, they do urge customers to check in-store.

Visiting the Best Buy Mobile page, users are welcomed with the following splash page messages:

Best selection of iPhone 4 accessories available in-store today!

Best Buy Mobile is the ultimate destination for iPhone 4 and iPhone 4 accessories. Check back each week as we had more hot iPhone 4 sku’s to our line up. Selection may vary by store.

Keep it mind that Apple will be giving iPhone 4 customers a free case, but if you need additional items, Best Buy will be one of the many retailers to check out for iPhone 4 accessories.

So if you want to jump on the Best Buy case selection, check it out but purchasing an iPhone 4 case now might not do you any good until next week.

    I assume these cases are made by the companies that got their hands on the stolen iPhone 4 prototypes first?

  • OMFG!iPhone4

    Or companies from countries that already have iPhone 4s. Honestly how many products still say Made in Canada?

    Bestbuy website Cellphone section posted it will have the iPhone 4 on July 30.

    It seems that we will also be able to buy the iPhone 4 from Best Buy on July 30th locked to any of the 5 carriers.

  • um, our consumerism society would not be possible without cheap labour overseas. It's still cost effective to build things half way around the world and ship them over here. Think an iPhone is expensive now? Imagine if they payed the workers $20 an hour with full benefits. It would be at least a $1000. Just saying. 😉

  • RyleyLamarsh

    Little off topic but I just want to clarify something. The ONLY way I can get an unlocked phone is if I wait in line at the Apple store on the 30th? I would much rather hit up Best Buy or Futureshop if I could.

  • xxl

    According to apple that's our only option.

  • RyleyLamarsh

    Oh my. It's going to be a gong show at our only apple store here in Calgary.

  • Erik Pomerleau

    Those are accessories, but do we know how we'll be able to “obtain” it. Even though it's unlocked, from what I understand so far, only Bell is able to “confirm” that the device will be available on the 30th.

    That's a bad shot from our Canadian Phone companies to not benefit from the large popularity of the iPhone … I mean, we don't even know if Rogers or Telus will be able to offer it on the 30th or if they'll only supply the cards for the ones who got an unlocked iPhone. Will it be only for pre-orders through their counters/website ? No info AT ALL …

    In May, US users had already the details of this whole deployment coming for them in June. We're less than a full week from the Canadian deployment and we're all clueless …

  • xxl

    Yea , thank apple for not letting us pre-order like the US did. Considering the percentage of canadians that will purchase iphone 4 Vs the amount that did in the US i think we should have been able to pre-order . Our population is no where close to the USA

  • xxl

    I woudn't just blame the carriers for lack of info. have you visited apple.ca recently ? no new info since US launch. Also i don't think the US users knew when the phone was going to be released until june @ WWDC.

  • Canuck

    wait what? If I order off apple.ca it won't be unlocked?

  • xxl

    that's not what i said. there will be no pre-orders. after launch i'm sure it will be on apple.ca , but whether or not its available to ship to you is another story.

  • Canuck

    I'd rather wait then line up with sweaty nerds and waste my time. It's just a phone so no point in lining up. Maybe Apple will ship the free bumper as well if you order from their site.

  • xxl

    the iphone is a awesome product that delivers all that its hyped up to be , i think millions would agree that it's more than just a phone. i'm not saying that as some apple fanboy as a consumer who has used windows and blackberry devices that cannot do things as smoothly as this devise.

  • Cygnus

    Does anyone know if they will still ship bumpers out so you can buy them in store or are they just making it all online-ordering only?

  • Ex

    It doesn't have to be the 30th but it does have to be an Apple Store or possibly Apple Online

  • Spleenzorio

    What I was told from a Best Buy person is you gotta send all your info to Apple and they send you the case, rather then you just getting a free case when you buy the phone. Although I think if you get it straight from a Bell or Rogers center you get the case right then and there, but that's just my understanding.

  • Ex

    Definitely no. A carrier store will not give you the free bumper.

  • Jordan

    Oh my god, I'm not looking forward to that. I would ask on what side of Market Mall the line up will start at, but somehow I think it's going to be pretty evident x_x

  • Whiterhino14

    There have been no, pre orders mentioned yet so until apple says yes/no we have no idea. The site didn't bother to update the new release day, I believe is because they are still unsure of #'s. When they update the store it's done for 17 countries. Most people aren't looking to pay full price for an unlock phone so we could very well see pre orders for those early in the week.
    I'm just saying all this to convince myself, I have no Idea whats going on. : ) just give my my blinking iphone already so I can start lusting over a new Ipad.

  • Whiterhino14

    Hey Canuck. I hate to break it to ya but you are here posting about cell phones and that makes you just as much as a nerd as anyone else here. And I'm not sweaty, I was born without sweat glands and have a severe allergic reaction to flannel, peanuts……oh and also any form of rubber, but I'm no nerd : ) Oh, on that note if anyone finds a black and red pocket protector it's mine. I lost it at the petting zoo on friday night. : )
    btw this is just a joke I don't know if you're a nerd or not. Just getting bored waiting for my new Iphone. lol

  •  Xaroc

    Well people, Start Quiting your jobs, or take your vacation time and grab your tents.
    You can camp out starting tonight. Then as they open the door July 30th, you find out the shipment has been delayed! Noooo! now its August 7th! you get so angry you punch the “Sweaty nerd” behind you when he comments on your AC-DC shirt saying its terrible. Mass Panic throughout the streets… all because Apples inability to allow pre-orders, and mans Inability to wait lol

  • D4Yv3

    I am sorry everyone, but somebody has to put out the mist of wishful thinking, even though all will hate me.

    There will be no preorders. Apple has never done so for Canada and (apparently) never will, especially with <6 days until release. Get to your local BellRogersTelusApple store early Friday morning and clear up a few hours that day.

  • D4Yv3

    I called my Bell store yesterday. They are ordering phones on the 24th (today). My mall will open at 8:00am and my Bell store 10:00am.

  • Roby145

    Ex,

    I am planning to go to my Rogers plus store on the 30th at around 6:30am cause the store opens at 10.

    Do you think that if I come at this time, this will secure me an iPhone

    Also do you think that Rogers will be carrying it in the 30th?

    I don't have an apple store near me and so this is the only option I have to get the phone on launch day.

    Lastly, I am new to the whole iPhone thing, what should I bring with me hen I come to the store to wait? Just a credit card or is something else needed?

    Thanks in advance for answering my question

    I really appreciate it

    I jus called the apple store at pacific mall vancouver and the guy told me that they havent received any stocks of iphone 4 and they dnt knw if they will be selling it or doing pre order all he said was the public announcement was made but after that they havent received a word from apple about iphone 4. this could possibly mean that there could be iphone 4 delays

  • kobe

    then how do we get it rogers or fido have not said anything regarding iphone 4 and now apple store dsnt knw anything abt it too?

  • Apple guy

    As employees (me being one) we have gotten scheduling and everything and the july 30th date but we are not allowed to talk about it until its on Apple.ca its just policy, one of my managers said some of the information they have is extremly confidential and cant be shared with us yet but i wouldnt worry everything points to a release for july 30th

  • Guest

    Hey Ex,
    There are 2 Apple stores in my area and I am wanting to get an unlocked 32GB iPhone 4 on launch day. One opens at 9:30am, and the other at 10am (regular store hours).
    Which store is 'better' and what time should I start lining up in order to get my iPhone? 🙂
    Thanks Ex!

  • Philippe Laramee

    I went to bestbuy today in the montreal aera and the iphone 4 accessories they have are crap. Nothing interresting. And also, I got my iphone 4 preordered already by a company in montreal that deals with the engineers order of Quebec. They are ordering the phones this coming monday and they reserved one apparently for me tht I'll be able to get either on friday or on monday. I don't know if it is true but the girl told me they were pretty much the only company doing that. She even called me home after I had asked her information two weeks ago about the iphone 4 availability at their store. She had my phone number and called me friday to let me preorder it. Isn't this nice! Let's wait and see if I'll actually get it on friday!

  • Counting apples

    apple guy, can we be friends? i need some1 on the inside to save me a phone

  • Apple guy

    thanks

  • Alex

    Hey EX, great answers so far. First time posting.

    Will I be able to buy more than ONE Unlocked iPhone??? Should we expect order limit of two per customer?

    Looking at apple store UK website, there is an order limit of two per customer.

    Thanks

  •  Xaroc

    Apple Guy. I dont mean any disrespect but do your employee (bestbuy and/or Futureshop) Really get any training? Every time i go i deal with dumb teenagers lol. trying to tell me incorrect information, trying to push that their idea is right, and how im wrong, but have been a technician for 10 years lol

    Do i have bad luck with getting young kids for help? or is training minimal to none?

    Again no disrespect, i just very curious.

  • Ex

    Don't worry.
    It's all coming.

  • Ex

    Both will be open at 8am

  • Ex

    Two per customer

  • confused

    I've got a question about the locked phones: Fido offered me a retention package for signing a 3 year contract when I get my new iphone, but I have to call them back when I activate the new phone to implement the new plan I guess. But could I buy my new phone from an Apple store instead of Fido and still get this new plan (I'm afraid Fido might sell out quicker than Apple)? Apple sells carrier locked phones, correct? But how does it work? Do they sign you up with Rogers/Telus/Bell etc. contracts at the store?

  •  Xaroc

    They can yes. If fido chooses to remember your special plan. This has
    happen to me and some of my friends before. They will offer you a
    great plan, your all happy now. When it comes time to cash in, they
    don't remember, and there is no record of it lol. Hopefully it goes
    well for you.

    But yes apple can set you up with plans too.

  • Guest

    Oh, cool! Thanks. What time should I start lining up though?

  • Plageius

    i picked up two cases and screen protectors today

  • reubenkib

    Yeah, I was wondering that as well. I want to get there at 6:30, would that get me an iPhone for sure?

  • Apple guy

    Xaroc i work at an apple store cant say which one cause i can get in trouble but yeah, i can tell you we get lots of training at the apple store and we make sure we are as prepared as we can for product launches

  •  Xaroc

    Ooo I might have misunderstood your first post then, I thought you
    worked at a bestbuy or something. Yeah apple employees are always
    pleasant to deal with. Wish I could say the same for
    futureshop/bestbuy kids lol

  • Ex

    4 am

  • Ex

    If you get it on Fido, with their plan, the iPhone will be locked.

  • Guest

    4am?! SERIOUSLY?! O.O

  •  Xaroc

    Yeah man. There is 100's of other people who are thinking exactly what you are “If i get there early i will have a better chance” you have to get there even earlier to beat them, but there is other people thinking that as well lol.
    Even at 4AM you wont be the first in line, im pretty sure of it.

  • Chiara

    are you going to pacific center for your phone??? Do you know what time the apple store will open there launch day??? regular mall times or earlier for the release?

  •  Xaroc

    8am

    Sent from my iPad.

  • kobe

    no i am actually gonna go to best buy to get one i called apple store and they told me that they dnt have any info on wat time they would open so as of know lets just assume it opens as regular time

  • 8yr telus customer….

    I am starting to get scared and I am only half kidding……are they serious about lining up at 4:00am???? AAACK!

  • Noahattic

    nice info, apple guy! it seems like iphone 4 coming to canada on the 30th has been secured!! ill lineup in the morning on friday for sure!! actually, i rather lining up at 4:00 am than pre-ordering it and letting the fedEx guy delay my order!!

    just one more question for ya, apple guy. i heard some rumors that all the iphone 4 coming to canada are unlocked, included the carriers' ones, is it true? i really hope it's since pretty much all the carries in canada carry the iphone now.

  • Canuck

    How could anyone possibly say if you line up at 6:30 you will get one for sure. We cannot predict what people in your area will do…. Your question is impossible to answer. All we can do is guess.

  • Microsoft_tech_support

    To all of you who are affraid to not-getting a iphone 4 on the 30th in Canada.. I would like to know if there was shortage of iphone 4 in the USA when it came out.. did a million american couldn't get their hand on one ?

    Lets say there all sells out on the 30th.. dosn't Apple will ship another batch a few days later.. Apple want your money, they will produce iphone4 as long as there are customers.. and most company want to get great stats in selling X amount of phone on the release and brag about how much they sold.

    My point is.. we will probably be able to get it easy on the 31, or the first.. and if there is a shortage of units, maybe a few days later Apple will ship the second batch!
